My sister has just moved house and has also gone back to Devon (UK) to live. Lucky she has finally retired! As I told her about time too as she rightfully deserves that retirement. She has worked real hard all her life and I am so glad she can get loads of quality time now.
One of the reasons she has moved back to Devon is being in contact with her grandchildren and of course "The Pinks" ! The great grandchildren!!
|The Pinks as I call them!|
I always worry about these online purchases for birthday gifts in case they are not what they advertise on the webpage but going by this photo that she sent to me I think it lives up to its description. It also arrived dead on time so I shall be using this shop again. Moving houses and a birthday is also a perfect excuse for me to crochet something so other than the plant I am also going to send her this Table runner that I have just finished.
I used Katia Jaipur cotton ( I heart that cotton...works up just lovely!) and a 2.00 hook. I was inspired by a photo on pinterest of something similar to this but it is dramatically tweaked to fit the idea I had in my head so I think I can say it is my pattern. I actually think it will look great on the table in this photo which is in my sister's new conservatory in her new house. What do you think of the colours? Constructive criticism welcome!!!
